 Thinking about it, I would also replace all the "O" rings to assure a no leak rebuild. Did you remove the carbs first? With the fuel lines still attached, the head will not come off. Besides you will remove the carbs prior to bringing the head to a machine shop. Is that a 1965 140 engine?

 Hi, so I have the rockers off and the stud nuts off.  See picture.The head
isn't budging though so I am wondering what else I have to take off to get
the head loose? Do I have to take off the carb?

Also there is 1 small bolt under the carburetor in the picture at the round
end of the wrench that is tough to get to that I am pretty sure goes into
the head. Is there is a trick to taking it off? Too small to get my small
ratchet in the space.

Will I need to/should I put new gaskets on the jugs?
